You use the same step!
Where it becomes unfashonable for me is when the auto decompesser gets activated on an XR6.

Stupid things people say when stopped...(bsa)
Them; what size is it?
Me; 500cc
Them; You sure kick it over easy for being such a big bore...

They just don't get it that you do not try to kick through the compression stroke.


And now ladies and gentlemen...yesterday's ride...
Only 32 miles but a battle the whole way! Parked at china wall and met up with 2 other riders I had never met before from the sacramento croch rockets forum. These were youngins that were game, actualy relished anything I could throw at them. And they still wanted more!
After 3 tip overs where they had to pull the white thing off me, and one front tire wash out on a greasy clay right hander, I took the easy way back to the truck. They went ahead and backtracked through the ruts and snow and muck that was loop 5 on sunday.
Might have been the most exersion I've done on a ride this year! I was aching at the evening couch session to watch the Giants. 2 IB profin one vocodin. Bike washed where to next?







You see, these guys have 250's and 425's...blue bikes.
And of course with the majority of other riders we saw on the trail...the order of the day is orange bikes.

But hey, the big heavy tall white thing can do it all...just wears ya out a bit...

starting problems

I'm determined to get my BRP to start better hot and cold, this is my plug

this is my stator


Everything I have read says it is fuel or spark that makes them hard starting, plug looks good to me startor looks fried, 460 OHMs is way high, as the day got hotter it went up to 660 ohms, put it in the freezer and it went down to 550 ohms but no where near the 220-330 ohms it is supposed to be stock.
Thanks Steve and Christian for the help getting on the right track!

In any case with risers and the bars pushed forward a nice amount so the tips of the bars point upwards I have a great feel and riding position now

also YOU ALMOST ALWAYS have to cut some off the ends of the bars...it helps a bucnh with shoulder and back pain and make turning faster...

cheers

hey bam

here is a pic of the pro taper evos with single fatbar adapters risers...you can see the bend and sweep pretty well here...its less than stock but is a tad higher maybe with the risers overall...after this pic I ccut almost an inch of each end as they come really long when new...Im down to 30inches end to end versis the almost 32 when new...



I have other pics if interested...
Thanks for the input mate. They look really good and might work as a stock replacement as 7/8s. I think I'll try them out and if I don't like them as much I can put them on another bike.

Thanks!

I would like fat bars but I have heard the adapters really mess with the bar position (at least on the 650R). And new clamps are expensive.

Ordered new stator from XR's only, shipping was only $30 to Oz so I ordered it direct.
Mean while I have all that black sh...stuff off and have begun the rewind of my old one. Pain in the ass to get it off and now it is a pain in my back trying to wind the new wire on neatly. Of course I couldn't find the exact wire so this stuff is a little thicker but it was free so here goes nothing.
Bonus I'm doing it at work so it is like I'm getting paid for it!

when rewinding make sure the pole underneath is covered in epoxy and completely isolated from the wires...

aim for 300ohms and wind TIGHT

then cover in your favorite high temp epoxy...3m makes one specifically for this...all I had was jb weld and some other crap...

they both failed over time

There is a starter joint just up the road from me so it is baking in their oven right now, they dipped it in some laquer stuff, bake, dip, bake again. It ended right at 200 ohms, way big on the spool. Mine had a plastic spool under so no worries on it shorting to the pole. Slightly bigger wires, more windings, should be more Volts and more amps even though it is lower Ohms. Anyway back up should be on it's way just in case!
